the definition of intimacy is
the kind of closeness she has never felt.
camaraderie and loyalty,
a warmth that makes all fear melt.
she'll trust him with her demons
so her open wounds can seal
patch the lacerations of childhood
and treat scars that'll never heal
she wants nothing more than intimacy.
she wants only to feel loved
to be cared for and fought for,
or just even to be hugged.
'cause she has demons on her side,
instead of friends and family.
she talks to them late at night,
when she can't feel her sanity.
deprived of any intimacy,
that she would ever hold.
refused pursuit of happiness,
unlike what she was told.
society ignored her,
with her soft and quiet voice.
since her friends can't seem to hear her,
she yearns to make a noise.
craving some form of intimacy,
she's desperate for it now,
lets herself be used
more than others would allow.
embarrassed of her wolf,
feeding it to keep it down.
quite often it manages to overflow,
and she's terrified she'll drown.
